Offered in collaboration with the Bahá’í inspired organization ebbf (Ethical Business Building the Future, ebbf.org), Operationalizing Moral Excellence in Business emables learners to explore and redefine the fundamentals of business and management using the new paradigm founded on the revolutionary spiritual and moral principles drawn from the Bahá’í Revelation. The approach taken in this course is to make the required change an integral, inseparable, and indistinguishable part of daily behavior and culture of the organization. This approach develops stakeholder engagement and ownership of the change. To provide a contrast, we will first review current understanding of business ethics and then challenge commonly held assumptions in business and management. We will take time to rethink the purpose of business, examine the meaning of such spiritual and moral values as unity, justice, nobility, service, and explore how these values and operational principles such as consultation apply in a business environment. We will also explore groundbreaking concepts of leadership, power, and corporate governance. Finally, learners will be given an opportunity to add value to society by bringing about spiritual and material progress based on their unique circumstances and desire to serve.

Audience: This course should be of interest to anyone working in public/private organizations, discerning customers, or individuals who are somehow affiliated with organizations such as business owners, entrepreneurs, academicians, researchers and students, strategists, and business practitioners that provide innovative or transformational consulting services and would like to sharpen their social entrepreneurship skills.
